Arrival Story: Barnaby adopted us on October 20, 2007, while we were visiting a local shelter looking for a buddy for Bo Peep. He was in a cage with a litter of kittens which had been turned over to the shelter after the owners discovered someone dropped the litter off at their farm.
Bio: Barnaby is the caretaker of the house. If someone isn't feeling well for some reason, he's there giving you all his love and attention kneeding your stomach or bonking you and making you kiss his nose. He doesn't rule the nest, but he makes sure everyone is happy and taken care of.
There's been a strange change of command at our household lately and to my dads it seems as if I'm calling the shots now!
I'm a rather low-keyed loveable kitty. Usually I will let TomTom and ^Willow^ call the shots and I just tag along for the fun. I'm what my dads call a "lovebug". I love to rub up against my dads legs whenever I can, at times practically tripping them. I grab hold of their pant legs and stretch up to them asking for nose kisses all the time! My dads lean down and I bonk my nose as they give me kisses. I love to knead their bellies, lay beside them and am very even tempered.
Within the past week or so, it seems like I want to be the boss of the house more and more. When daddy puts dry kibble down, ^Willow^ was always the first to the bowl (she really prefers kibble rather than canned, no matter how much daddy entices her.. she'll eat the canned, but LOVES dry). Now, I'm the first one to the bowl and I won't leave it until I'm good and ready. When we eat our canned food, we all get our own plates. TomTom is always the first to finish and he waits patiently until the rest of us are finished and then tries to clean our plates for us.
Now, when I'm finished.. or even if I'm not... if there's anything left on ^Willow^'s plate.. I go over and eat it! It's not that I'm eating any more than I usually do... it's just how I go about it! MOL.
There's no fighting or arguing over who's the alpha cat in our home... as ^Willow^ pretty much is... but lately, I seem to be giving her a run for her money! Somehow I think that in the long run... I ain't gonna win... not with that little stinker!
